Position: Support – Tier 1 E

Been with InMotion Hosting since: December 2016

 

How have you enjoyed working in the web hosting industry since starting at InMotion Hosting?

This is the first job I’ve had where I actually learn something new everyday. Things are constantly changing here to keep up with technological advances, so we’re always on our toes. There is never a single moment of boredom working here.

What is your current role at InMotion Hosting? What do you like most about it?

I’m currently a Tier 1E Technical Support Representative, which is a Tier 1 with extra access to perform certain actions. I find it extremely rewarding when I’ve been working on a troubling issue for a customer and I come to a solution. Aside from the actual work side of things, the environment here is fun and relaxed which makes it impossible to not make any friends. Beware of the extra pounds you’ll put on from the stocked snack cabinet and the delicious free weekly lunches!

What was the training process like?

The training process was really thorough. I came to this job barely knowing what Web Hosting was, and the trainers made sure we had a good understanding of the job before we got to the floor. The discussions and group games were entertaining, engaging, and facilitated a really positive learning experience.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?

Ooh, this is a toughy. My girlfriend’s mom just got us Ipad Pros for Christmas, and I’m already in love with that. It’s practically like a keyboard-less Mac Book. I’m not too artsy myself, but it’s amazing if you’re into graphic design. I mainly use it for photo editing and games.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I absolutely love traveling! Earlier this year my girlfriend and I went to London and Paris and that was amazing. I really enjoyed the culture and the overall atmosphere. We definitely plan on returning! I’m also a super foodie. I love finding new restaurants to try out, and this area has a pretty great selection. When I’m not eating or traveling, I’ll typically be playing video games or brushing up on my coding skills.

What is your current role at InMotion Hosting? What do you like most about it?

My current role is Advanced Product Support Manager, which oversees the Advanced Product Support Team as well as T2C, an escalation point team for T1’s. I love working with my teams, and they’re both technically advanced, which is a plus. I enjoy being able to improve and create processes that provide a positive impact on the customer’s experience.

I started here as a T1 here with a little Linux experience. I knew troubleshooting though. I was able to quickly advance to the T2C team, followed by the T2 Systems team all within the first year. Over the next couple of years I progressed through the T2S team into T2S-II, Team Lead, and finally Supervisor. I transitioned from T2S Supervisor to Advanced Product Support Manager during my 5th year at the company. Throughout my journey, I was able to build and reinforce my customer service, technical, and leadership skills.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?

This isn’t the most exciting answer, but the coolest gadget I own would definitely have to be my computer. It’s the tool that started all of this for me. It allows me to learn, research, connect with people, build things, and it works as a source of entertainment. I don’t know where I’d be without it

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of great people at InMotion, and I really appreciate that experience. I’ve made plenty of friends here over the years and I’ve adopted some great hobbies and positive experiences as a result. I rock climb because I was introduced to it by a coworker here. The house I own and the car I drive were both referred and suggested to me by people I work or have worked with. InMotion and the people I’ve met here have had such an influential experience on not just my work life, but my personal life as well.

What was the training process like?

I struggled at first with the training , I started out in the Tier 1 Pipe line. I had amazing teachers and tons of help everywhere . I just had to find the drive to be a self starter and learn new things. I had to keep a positive attitude and and open mind. I asked a ton of questions, and no matter how simple they were to the people I was asking, I still wasn’t treated wrong or made to feel anything but encouraged.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?

Mirraviz – Its a screen which has multi view capability. You look at it from one angle you will see say your video game, another angle would be the 6 :00 news , and another angle would be cartoons. So depending on which side of the room your sitting you would see different content. It uses Directed Photon technology. By far the coolest gadget i have come across.

I work at InMotion by day and im also an FM radio personality by Night.  I have a brand new baby boy who just turned 3 months old name Michael Jr. with my lovely future wife

Position: Design Supervisor

Been with InMotion Hosting since: October 2016

How have you enjoyed working in the web hosting industry since starting at InMotion Hosting?

It’s been a pleasure working here because I’ve consistently seen us go above and beyond to thrill our customers. Working in the web hosting industry is fulfilling and rewarding. Knowing that we play a vital role in websites and email and people’s livelihood is powerful.

I’m the Web Design Supervisor. I love the people that I work with and am passionate about teaching and mentoring them to be better designers, developers, and leaders. I started out as a Web Hosting Technical Support Representative, worked hard and made a difference. When the opportunity for leadership came up, I applied and was selected to lead this team. I love it here, because of the opportunity provided to move up and take on new, exciting roles.

What was the training process like?

Training was outstanding. I was given all the tools and resources I needed to learn our systems and processes. When I graduated, I was ready to provide support to our customers, and had a transition week after that as well.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I don’t feel like I’m coming to work everyday. It’s not a job…it’s a career and a place that I care a great deal about. Since the day I started here there’s never been that feeling of oh, I have to work today. No, I get the opportunity to come here and make an impact, lead some awesome people, and work with outstanding leaders.
Other then that…I’ve been playing guitar and writing music for 23 years. My max deadlift is 510lbs and I typically eat 5k calories a day…and I didn’t save 15% on car insurance by switching to geico.
